I love the shoes. They’re lightweight and fit perfectly. And they’re very stylish. I’ve gotten compliments on them. Which is kind of a rarity for sneakers.

Nice looking shoes but I disappointed it since I couldn't get them on my feet. It was cited as good for someone with high arches but it did not work for me,even with loosening the laces I had to struggle to get my foot in the shoe. In all fairness,my estimates of size,width and comfort are not reliable since my foot was never completely in the shoe. If you have a high instep think carefully before you buy this shoe.

I bought this shoe primarily for Zumba- I had been wearing Nikes but I wanted more support at the ball of my feet and a light weight comfortable shoe. After reading a lot of reviews on this Ryka model, all which played up how good it was for Zumba, I took a chance. I have not been disappointed. The shoe is wonderful. Very comfortable, gives me that ball of foot cushion I wanted, nice looking, light weight, and not that expensive. In fact, Zappos’ price was better than Amazon. I highly recommend.

Style plus in a sneaker type shoe. Easy to get on and off. Fit is comfy, not restrictive. Excellent cushion/rebound in the sole. Diagonal band sits behind the toe joint, so doesn't restrict if you have big toe joint problems. Material is stretchy, flexible and light-weight. Great for casual wear. If you need a lot of support as in a cross-trainer, or have trouble with pronation, this shoe is probably not for you. It has more of a barefoot feel where you can stretch your toes. The elastic material around the opening of the shoe is a bit scratchy right above the heel. Therefore I would not wear them without socks. I found the best look was white crew socks with black polkadots that fold down low on the ankle. The fit easily accommodated a metatarsal forefoot pad. I think they look really cool. I've been a size 7.5 wide for decades, but the 7.5 in this style was too long. Am exchanging for a size 7.

I still can’t decide if I want to keep this shoe. It has some nice features, except one- cushioning in the forefoot. Pros: lightweight, good arch support (I have high arches, so this is a must for me), good heel cushioning, stable, holds my heel in place, pretty cute Cons: my forefoot isn’t totally happy working out (HIIT/cardio/strength)in this shoe; seems to be needing more cushioning or support (though it is better than some of the other athletic shoes I’ve tried in my quest to replace my old workout sneakers)

Pros: relatively cute shoe, good cushioning in the heel, mostly fit my feet (I have a somewhat wider forefoot, narrower heel, and high arches). I normally wear an 8 in athletic shoes, and I ordered an 8. Cons: my feet started hurting less than 15 minutes into my workout (terrible cushioning in forefoot), little arch support, and the heels slipped a little (although this did not bother me) Bottom line: I returned these because they made me want to stop my workout. (I changed back into my old sneakers instead.)

I have flat, wide feet. I like Ryka Devotion to wear in the warmer month. It's lightweight and comfortable. But, having a mesh body it gives no support where I need it. I slip in my orthotics and get along all right. I normally wear a size 7 1/2 but tried this 8 W, hoping to get the width I need. No luck. the sole is no wider. There just seems to be more fabric in the body which doesn't make a size W. I have respected Ryka as a trustworthy shoemaker but am dismayed at this fake size wide.

I bought this boot in a size 8 W. The boot seems well made, lightweight and warm. But I'm having no luck getting a useful wide size from Ryka. The sole seems the same width as a medium, just has more fabric in the body which feels sloppy and looks weird on. I've had the same result with the Ryka Devotion - just more fabric to accommodate a denser foot? Come on, Ryka you make a good shoe but not a good size wide.

I usually wear the Ryka Devotion in a size 7 1/2 which is just a lit snug on my longest toe. So I tried the size 8. I have plenty of room, a little extra actually. I just wear thicker sox with the size 8. This shoe has a mesh body so it's cooler in summer - but - I find no support for my needy feet. Mesh does nothing in that area. The sole is lightweight and wears well.

I wanted to use these for light hiking. I have a high instep, a wide footbox,and a narrow heel so I was excited and thought these would hit the mark however I have to return because they have no traction on the bottom. So they are not ideal for any kind of hiking and not attractive enough to just wear as a shoe. They were wide enough in the footbox which is hard to find but not made to hike in so I need to return

These shoes are very comfortable because they are made of very soft non-durable materials. The midsole (the light colored material between the black outer sole and the white inner sole) feels as soft as a toddler foot ball. I had so much hope the rotation point would make these my ideal zumba shoes, but that is made of that same cheap soft material. Why do shoe designers sacrifice durability and quality just to make a soft shoe without no break-in time? I will continue hunting for zumba shoes. These are going back.

These construction and materials of these shoes is flimsy. I wished I had looked at the images more carefully. I believe they surely are light and will have no break-in time, but they don't look like they could last more than a year. I am sending them back.

I really liked the look of this shoe and After reading all the comments I ordered a pair. Once I tried them on and walked around a little bit, I was not completely happy with the support. So unfortunately I had to return them.

I will be wearing these strictly for work, they replaced a pair of Pumas that were similar in style and very comfortable. I had a hard time finding a pair of athletes I liked. I do a combination of sitting/standing and using a desk treadmill at work on a 10-12hr shift. I own 2 pairs of Ryka water shoes that I do like a lot and never owned a pair of their walking shoes- so I thought I'd give them a try. Out of the box they're comfortable. I ordered a half size bigger than my water shoes as I don't wear those with socks and my toes reached the limits. I will say I was surprised that they felt like the same size as my water shoes- that may be due in part to the memory foam soles on this pair. They're decent looking for athletics and the pink is very subtle. I have used them at work for the last week and so far so good. I'm not sure I'm a fan of memory foam to be honest but really time will tell. So if my opinion changes I'll update my review.

This is my 3rd pair of Ryka Skywalk. I return again and again because I can count on being able to open the box, put on the shoes, and walk comfortably out the door. Bravo for comfort and consistency!

Looks great in pics on line. Was expecting better quality. Materials used seem cheap. Really looks like a 10.00 shoe with a big price tag.

Hate to say it, but I did not like this shoe at all. It wasn't because of the fit but mostly because of the actual look. It looks cute online but when I saw this shoe in real life it was not what I had expected. All fake materials. Really looks like a ten dollar discount shoe.

The first pair I bought were magic... slipper like comfort right out of the box. Then I bought a 2nd pair. Strangely made. One shoe was a size too small and the other shoe fit okay. Neither with the comfort of the first pair. I think Ryka might have trouble with quality control.
